Property: Three To View With Two Bedrooms

THE GRAIN Store is part of a development of an old village farm in Acol, near Birchington in Kent. At the entrance to the former farmyard, the Grade II, weather-boarded grain store has been converted into a two-bedroom home that has bags of character.

It has a 19ft 5in sitting room with vaulted ceiling, stripped wooden floor and period-style radiators. The kitchen is irregularly shaped, fitted with modern units, and has a built-in oven and hob and a wooden floor. There will be parking for two cars. The asking price is pounds 85,000 through GW Finn & Sons (01304 612147).

THIS OLD terraced cottage, called Starboard, is just yards from the tidal waters of Stonehouse Pool, near Plymouth, and is thought to have been built as servants' quarters for a big estate in 1798. It later became a sailmaker's premises. Now a two-bedroom home, it has a sitting room, dining room and 24ft kitchen on the ground floor, with a further sitting room on the first floor, with views over the water. The main bedroom on the second floor has a high ceiling with exposed roof trusses. Outside there's a rear walled garden and a garage. pounds 93,000 through Punch & Roche (01752 267477).

SHIPWRIGHT'S COTTAGE in Salcombe, south Devon, is the kind of cottage you dream about when stuck in the city on a dreary winter's day. The renovated, early-19th-century, three-storey house has views across the estuary and the beaches, and is almost in front of the starting line for dinghy racing. The white-painted cottage has a bedsitting room on the ground floor, with window seat and storage under, and a recessed wardrobe. On the first floor, there's a 11ft 9in sitting room with views over the water, stone fireplace and exposed ceiling beams. The second bedroom is on the second floor along with en suite shower rooms. Offers over pounds 175,000 to Marchand Petit (01548 844473).
